There’s no doubting the Air Force 1’s lofty position in Nike’s ever-expanding stable. Along with the Air Jordan 1, the AF-1 is just about as close as the sneakersphere gets to a truly timeless classic. Over the years, not much has changed to the design – quite simply because it doesn’t need to. But now we have a handsome AF-1 with a slight difference: the exposed foam at the top of the tongue that we’ve been seeing on quite a few Swoosh silhouettes in recent times.
Elsewhere, the design is dressed in ‘Cool Grey’, ‘Bright Ceramic’, and white, before orange provides a minor colour contrast on the tongue branding. Pairs have been popping up around the globe, with a Stateside release expected very soon.
